  1. Act 2:38-39 (38) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (39) For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. What is the promise of the gift of the Holy Ghost? Act 10:44-47 (44) While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. (45) And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. (46) For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, (47) Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? It associates tongues with the gift of the Holy Ghost, and that promise is to them that are afar off, even as many as the Lord shall call.
  2. I like it. Good words, to the point, and would be a song that can be easily learn t, like it.
  3. No problem.
  4. First of all I do not believe in this repeat a few words stuff, that has not been my experience, and not all pentecostal assemblies are like the one you mentioned. There is the fake, but there is also the real, and the bible shows that tongues exists. Be careful to not put everything into one box. And no I am not for people who say repeat after me in order to speak in tongues, because that is not biblical.
  5. I found a list they gave us, at a Pentecostal assembly. I guess I had wrote down what they said, now how credible are all these testimonies? I do not know, but nevertheless, here it is:
  6. I like the combined stuff me an Sister covered as concerns Isaiah, especially our last threads, and certain parts of others. And since no one has replied to start the next subject, I guess I will start one. Here is a scripture that gets really misused in a huge way. Rom 8:1-2 (1) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. I have heard many people that call themselves Christians, use this in such a way, as to make an excuse for sin, and it is like not much matters for there is no condemnation in Christ. And the part that says who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, is usually not mentioned. But also, because of certain bible versions, that phrase (in certain versions) is not even mentioned, which is not good. Those words, in certain versions, is totally gone. Here is an example of this: KJV N.I.V Rom 8:1-2 (1) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Rom 8:1-2 1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. If you want to comment on this, or add further stuff, or mention similar things, feel free.
  7. I love the fact that we can study an issue together sort of speak and provoke each other to study, and then get more clear results. That is awesome !!!!!!!
  8. 1 Corinthians chapter 14, is mainly talking about unknown tongues, not known to men, with the exception of this scripture: 1Co 14:21 (21) In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. Other tongues is not referring to unknown tongues, but rather referring to tongues that the person speaking does not know, but is known in the world. You can be speaking in tongues, and at times be speaking in an other tongue (Chinese, Arabic or a language you do not know), or you can be speaking in tongues and be speaking in an unknown tongue not known to men, but to God.
  9. Love what your saying here, good stuff, we are all learning and are seeing things more clearly , thank you Jesus. Totally true, love this. I am glad we are seeing things in a more clear fashion as regards Isaiah, God bless you Sister. And if you want to start the next topic, go right ahead Sister, God bless.
  10. I will share two scriptures here: 1Co 14:2 (2) For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 1Co 14:27-28 (27) If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. (28) But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. How can we know if unknown tongues is referring to other tongues which are known in the world, but not known to the person, or if it is referring to tongues that are not known at all to men, but is known to God? Well it is very easy to know. We just have to compare scriptures with scriptures. What does it say on the day of Pentecost about other tongues? Act 2:4-6 (4) And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (5) And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. (6) Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. The unknown tongues that are not spoken to oneself and to God, always have to be interpreted, but the other tongues in Acts needed no interpretation, which this all by itself, shows a distinction between the tongues.
  11. Ya I know there are a lot of bad stuff out there, I once went to a meeting with a friend of mine, and heard this preacher speak in tongues, and it was evil, you could feel an evil presence behind it, I find when it is genuine, there is a sense of humbleness and humility to it, a sense of reverence. God bless.
  12. Any whos, if someone is willing, you can start another subject, as regards a scripture , how it is mis applied, and the context of it, and who knows God may reveal something to us we never saw.
  13. Well if tongues are being used as a means to preach behind the pulpit, of course no preacher should be preaching in tongues. But praying in tongues, that is a whole other issue, which it says pray in the spirit and with the understanding.
  14. And what usually gets interpreted is unknown tongues and not other tongues. And here are 3 instances, were people spoke in tongues, whether it be other tongues or unknown, were there was no evidence of interpretation. Act 2:1-6 (1) And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. (2) And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. (3) And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. (4) And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (5) And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. (6) Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. Act 10:44-48 (44) While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. (45) And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. (46) For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, (47) Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? (48) And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Act 19:5-7 (5) When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. (6) And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. (7) And all the men were about twelve.
  15. Oh no doubt, too much tongues, would not be the best, but nevertheless they are not forbidden. And of course God wants us to excel in the edification of the church.
